Notice to all users of the Holodeck:

There are safety protocols in place that cannot be deactivated without the approval of two commanding officers or the captain to protect users of the Holodeck from potential harm. However, every time the Holodeck is ever used in a nontrivial manner, no matter what the safety protocols say, the Holodeck turns into a deathtrap.

Unless you believe yourself to be adept at constructing a forcefield from your communicator and 19th century Earth tools, or you're at the very least not wearing a red shirt, you are strongly advised not to attempt to use the Holodeck until a designer comes up with a safety protocol that doesn't kill you whenever somebody looks at it funny. Even when you're not on the holodeck. Or in the same quadrant. Or time period.

In fact, if you are wearing a red shirt, Starfleet may not be the job for you

Ants are dumb

I've been working more on my ant hill "game" (those are the biggest finger quotes you can imagine). Right now, I'm making them shove rocks around. Basically, you throw rocks at ants, and they move them away from their hill, trying to keep it clean.

The stupid ants though, sometimes one ant would walk up to a rock and start pushing it, while ten other ants are already pushing it in the opposite direction, so the ant gets squashed under the rock.

"Stupid Ant," I say.

Only after this do I realize it's my programming that caused the ant to act that way. D'oh!

Have you considered implementing some real ant behavior?
